Two Piano Pieces by Terry Riley
From a concert recording made in 1963 and not commercially available, Terry Riley performs his “Two Piano Pieces.” Well known for his seminal minimal, or repetitive music, compositions including “In C,” as well as for his association with the master Indian singer Pandit Pran Nath, Terry Riley is also a virtuosic keyboard player, who supported his composting activities by performing at local piano bars. All these qualities are evident in this short, delightful, and rare recording.
